stories later. >> two days after the marathon bombing, investigators appeared no closer to an arrest. the fbi making an urgent appeal for more videos and photos. learning new information about the types of bombs used in the attack designed to cause maximum trauma. jeff glor a couple of blocks from where the two bombings occurred. jeff good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the tents are still set up behind us, just a block down the street and over to the right is where the blast took place. and this morning, significant portions of boylston street remain shut down. no suspects have been named in the investigation of the twin bombs sent off near the finish line of the boston marathon there are emerging evidence details, found while searching the crime scene of devices designed to kill many. >> among items partially recovered are pieces of black nylon which could be a there a backpack and what appears to be fragments of bbsand nails,
possibly contained in a pressure cooker device. the bag would have been heavy, because of the components believed to have been in it. >> reporter: pressure cooker bombs are small but powerful because they briefly constrain the blast. once the devices explode, they are capable of adding large pieces of metal to the shrapnel spray. photos late yesterday show large chunks of a pressure cooker found near the explosion sites. >> small metallic fragments, shrapnel, nails. >> reporter: trauma surgeon george velmahos says his hospital has seen many with shrapnel wounds. >> numerous people with 10 20 30, 40 or more in their body. >> injuries would have been more deadly if it wasn't for nearby medical tents staffed with doctors and nurses. >> we had patients arrive with tourniquets in place, which saved them from bleeding to death.
>> reporter: still, three did not survive. the youngest 8-year-old martin richard, at the finish line with his family. his mother and sister suffered serious injuries. ♪ >> reporter: around 1,000 gathered at a vigil last night at his hometown of dorchester massachusetts. on tuesday, another victim identified. 29-year-old criskris kris krystle campbell. >> i can't believe this is happening. >> reporter: the third person identified is a boston university graduate student. as for the man police are questioning in the hospital. he was a spectator, he was injured, but not a person of interest. charlie and norah. >> we have john miller, formerueller, former fbi director.
>> they are looking at a lot of photographs. a couple of them they have seen they have high interest in. these are photographs that are immediately before the bombings or minutes before the bombings where they see an individual with packages who they think is a possible match for the bomber. with more than one photograph with more than one individual. they are trying to go through digital evidence will we find a picture of our guy. >> this particular photograph people are making note of this morning. it looks like if you look in that area there, it looks like a package in front of the speck spectators. most of the spectators had a blast from the back of them. the blasts of their legs were injured. what do we think of something like this? >> the forensics are telling us there are many shards of a black nylon bag, the container of the pressure cooker bag.
what you see there is a bright orange bag. it's worth looking at. but i think you already hinted there is a lot of evidence it could be something else. >> are they looking at the relation shup between pressure cookers and the al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. they talked about it in one of the magnificent zones, and it was tried to be used in the times square bombing. what does this tell us? >> the pressure cooker bomb is an old favorite in al qaeda training camps in afghanistan and you will find it in "inspire" magazine in their recipes. that points in that direction. but i can tell you, i was at a pressure cooker bomb scene at the port authority in new york in the '70s. i saw a pressure cooker bomb in 1976 by a croatian freedom fighter, i have seen them by
domestic groups. if you know what you are doing, it's prolific. >> do you have the impression looking at all of this evidence the nature of the bomb all of the videos they have not seen anything yet? or have they seen some things intriguing for them? >> exactly that charlie. they have seen some things that have them lit up we have to figure out who this guy is who that guy is who this individual, because they are all possible but they don't have that smoking gun picture and they don't have an i.d. on anybody. what's really interesting is if you read the jihadist blogs going on. the one with the most credible connection with terrorist groups, they are struggling with the same analysis. they say we think this is us we want it to be us and this could be the maturation of ideology where we put it out for the lone wolfs to step up. they don't know how to claim responsibility. but it's interesting to see the
investigators struggling with the question and at the same time, al qaeda is wondering what is that? they are wide open in terms of possible suspects and motives. could be anything at this point. >> thanks, john. president obama called the attack cowardly and says investigators will uncover whoever is responsible. he will attend an interfaith service for the victims, it is being held in a cathedral less than a mile from monday's bombings. the president is expected to speak. >> condoleezza rice was secretary of state under george w. bush and served as national security advisor. thank you for joining us secretary rice. let me ask you about this. this is the first bomb attack on u.s. soil since 9/11. what is going on inside the white house. you have been there at a time like this trying to figure things out. >> yes. first let me add my voice, the condolence to the victims and their families prayers for the full recovery of those who
remain. obviously in the white house, these are the most difficult of days, the president has to be at once the comforter of the country, the person who pulls the country together in difficult circumstances, the white house will be very focused on preventing the next attack. and indeed the kind of clues that john miller was talking about are obviously to catch the perpetrators, but also to get clues about whether or not there may be followup attacks planned and finally, just important to note that even though there is a much better apparatus for dealing with these kinds of issues, entire homeland security apparatus, when it comes right down to it the president feels ultimate responsibility for protection of the mrpamerican people. >> nyou understand national security concerns so far, no one has claimed credit for it.
what would you be worried about? >> i think your gravest worry at this point. in many ways this day in boston is your worst nightmare an attack on american soil. but you really have to get over that fear and move on to making certain that you prevent the next attack if there is to be one. perhaps this was the act of a single individual or a small cell and there is nothing else coming, but they will wonder whether or not the ricin incident is somehow related. so it's the followup attack. >> what does it say to you that no one has stepped forward to claim credit? >> i do think that's odd. normally the jihadist groups the big ones like al qaeda, would take some kind of responsibility. because al qaeda and the jihadists have become so atom atomized, that doesn't mean this isn't somehow related to
jihadists, they will sort through where this attack comes from. domestic, foreign, we will reach out to our foreign partners for any information we can have. information will be flooding into the national counterterrorism center from around the world, because every country in the world will be looking to its intelligence and law enforcement agencies for any clue as to whether or not this has some foreign connection. >> secretary rice president obama in his statement yesterday said how little the government knows, how little he know we don't know who did this why it was planned or executed foreign or domestic. why say that? does the president know that people are listening to every word he said including those who might be responsible? >> of course. the president wants to reassure the american people that the government is on the trail so to speak and that justice will be done. the president has to be careful. he has to be sure that he has
got as much information as he can about what is now a forensic effort to understand how this attack unfolded. so i am not surprised that very little has been said yet. this is obviously an act of terror. it was obviously an effort to maim as many individuals, and as many innocent citizens as possible. but the president has to be very careful, not to give out information prematurely here and it's entirely possible too that they -- they want to be certain that they are not tipping off those who might have been responsible. >> secretary rice good to see you, thank you. >> thank you. >> good to be with you. >> as the secretary mentioned, another mustry remains unsolved. a suspicious letter sent to mississippi senator roger wicker that may have been laced with the deadly poison ricin. chip reid is on capitol hill. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. that letter was sent to a post
office facility in suburban maryland where they screen mail before it comes to capitol hill. a white powder was noted on the letter, it was tested and it was slightly positive for ricin. it can be lethal if it is ingesteded. senator wicker was never in danger and no reports of illness or injury at the maryland facility. the fbi is taking this very seriously this isn't the first ricin scare in washington. in 2004 a letter withricin addressed to bill frist of tennessee made it to capitol hill and senate office buildings shut down for days. in 2003, two letters intercepted before they made it to the white house, the initial test said slightly positive for ricin. but the latest word from the fbi is that preliminary tests are inconsistent. doing more extensive testing in
a laboratory and we ought to know later today whether this is ricin. norah and charlie. major developments in the killings of two prosecutors in texas. cbs 11 in dallas reports the wife of a former county official was arrested early this morning. she is charged with capital murder. kim williams being linked to the shootings of kaufman county d.a. mike mctell landleltell tellland and his wife cynthia and mark hasse. her husband is expected to be charged with murder. gun control legislation is on capitol hill this afternoon. it could mean the biggest chaungs to gun laws in 20 years. president obama called for this after the sandy hook school shootings. senators expected to vote on the bipartisan legislation which would expand background checks
for gun buyers it could be doomed, they may not have enough votes on legislation. britain says farewell to margaret thatcher, more than 2,000 mourners followed the military procession through the streets of lndandon. mark phillips joins us live from london. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. this was going to be a tense and controversial affair before boston. and concerns have ratcheted up even more because of boston. margaret thatcher was given a funeral with full military honors. her casket carried on a gun carriage to the cathedral. there were great concerns about security. the route lined with service personnel for ceremonial reasons and for reasons of security. there were 4,000 police -- extra police on duty because of it.
and this was the first major state affair since boston. it attracted notable personalities and vips from around the world. including the queen and prince philip and a substantial american delegation and former heads of government from around the world. it was considered to be potentially a very tempting target for protesters and terrorists. the protest was fairly muted. at one stage along the route, a group held up placards that spoked the horses and police moved in. so far, everything has gone according to plan. and a quiet and rev rential day. legendary football broadcaster pat summerall has died. for four decades, the voice of the nfl. james brown shows us why he was a giant at cbs sports. >> i'm pat summerall, welcoming
to you this cbs sports spectacular. >> one of the most loved and respected announcers in the nfl. veteran cbs sportscaster got his start through summer y'allall. >> for many years he was the voice of the nfl, voice of golf and the voice of reason. >> reporter: the low key approach was in stark contrast to the high energy of his long-time partner john madden. >> i felt like running down and playing. >> i have goosebumps all over. >> i'm glad we didn't. >> reporter: the combination worked and madden said we never had one argument and that was because of pat. he was something very special. >> finest place kicker. >> summerall made a name for himself on the field with the new york giants. in 1958 he booted an historic
game winning field goal through driving snow to put the giants on top. remarkably, he was on the broadcast team for the very first super bowl. his last was super bowl xxxvi in 2002, and for years, he called his other passion, as lead announcer for cbs sports for the tour tour. >> i have been here since 1968. >> summerall retired in 2002. >> i won't tell you i love you, but i like you an awful lot. >> he overcame alcoholism, and needed a liver transplant in 20 4. he became a man of strong faith and championed many charitable causes. he died on tuesday. >> what a great life to go from playing inging football as a place

authorities in boston say the investigation of monday's bombings is still wide open. there are no suspects yet. officials do know more about the bombs that killed three people. >> those bombs were made from pressure cookers filled with explosives and metal parts. jeff glor's in boston near the scene of the bombings. jeff, good morning to you. >> reporter: gayle, good morning to you. portions of boylston street where the blasts went off remain closed this morning. a lot of police out this morning. a number of businesses remain closed. but there are people out this morning. last night in dorchester, there was a vigil held in part for one of the youngest of the dead the youngest of the dead 8-year-old martin richard. martin played soccer. we talked to his teammates. they said he was just always smiling, a wonderful child. the second identified victim is 29-year-old chiskrystle campbell from medford massachusetts. we are also hearing this morning continuing stories of bravery of people who went in to help after
this happened including from carlos arredondo. >> i immediately went to help this young man who was bleeding very badly. he lost both of his limbs. and he's the one who i pretty much concentrate because there were so many people there, and everybody was in so bad shape that you only can do one thing. i concentrated to help this 20-year-old, maybe, person. >> reporter: there's a handwritten sign on the guardrail that's just behind me here. i just want you to take a look at it. it says "boston is a tough and resilient town. so are its people." charlie? norah? gayle? >> that is true. jeff glor, thank you. and the fbi is asking for any videos or photos that could lead to a suspect. and investigators already have hundreds of images to comb through. senior correspondent john miller is here with more on that. a former fbi assistant director. john, good morning. what are your sources telling
you? >> well, so the investigation is really at the beginning. but what they're starting to find is they are starting to find images from security cameras that show them people who might be the bomber and they're trying to get those down to where can we find more images that can give us more clues to that. and they're starting to find physical evidence of those bombs which they now know a lot more about. that's evidence that could yield other clues, fingerprints, dna and things when they get to the fbi lab. so this is a critical but beginning stage. now, the fbi has also asked anyone who might have seen anything to call or e-mail. they've asked anyone with photos along the marathon route near the finish line to send them. but how will they handle the avalanche of data and pixels? it's an unprecedented challenge. >> reporter: as investigators begin to search for physical evidence at the scene -- >> we are in the process of securing and processing the most complex crime scene that we've dealt with in the history of our department. >> reporter: they will also search through thousands of
photos and every frame of video they can get from bystanders and the more than 600 surveillance cameras in the area. >> it's an overwhelming task. >> reporter: tim murphy is a former deputy director of the fbi. one of the first times the bureau called upon the public to collect a mass amount of imagery was the 1996 bombing in the centennial olympic park in atlanta. but the images did not reveal a photo of the bombers. but today almost everyone carry carries a device that can capture images. in 2011 when police reached out to the public for video after the vancouver riots, they were overwhelmed with 5,000 hours of footage. it helped them identify some of the people behind the worst violence. and now in boston they're hoping that someone took a picture of the bomber. what about a case where you're getting first hundreds then thousands, then tens of
thousands, of disparate pieces of information tips from the public? >> all that information will be in a repository. and they'll be able to search across links. and the system itself will make links. whether it's a person place or thing, there are searches that are done to see if this name or this location or this information has come up in other cases. and you can do a googlelike search across this information. and that will connect the dots for us. >> reporter: the picture those dots create will be complex. investigators want it all. in a statement yesterday, attorney general eric holder said, "in an investigation of this nature no detail is too small." >> and on those details, john that you're talking about, because we're focused on this pressure cooker this morning that we're learning more about this. would a bomb-sniffing dog have found that before? because they sweeped the area before everybody went in. >> yes, they would have. and what that tells us is the person with the pressure cooker likely arrived after one of
those sweeps and was working in the crowd. >> let me come to this question. we referred to it earlier. the idea of somehow homegrown terrorists. you know give me a little bit of explanation of that. >> you know i spoke to some of the key people in this investigation just this morning. and they said, you know we are looking at the idea of all of this instruction by al qaeda and all of this material they've put out saying if you have the capability, act out where you can and how you can. but you can't get tunnel vision here because they're also saying what about a mad bomber who may have his own agenda? what about a domestic terrorism group like the militias or these things? so really, they're open to all possibilities. one of the things that i want to follow up on -- >> what about the pictures they're trying to analyze? because so many people have left town. >> this is going to be the key. and i think you just hit on it. yesterday, we've never seen anything like this customs and
border control and i.c.e. agents were at logan airport as people were getting on international flights saying were you at the marathon? let's download them now before you get 3,000 miles away. it's a real effort. >> there could be information in the back of the pictures. thanks john. boston's nfl owner is reaching out to bombing victims, robert kraft says the new england patriots will collect donations online to help in this recovery. his family will match the first $100,000 in contributions. the patriots' owner says he wants to encourage others to give. and former south carolina governor mark sanford is in trouble over a run-in with his ex-wife. he's the republican whose career was derailed by an extramarital affair. jan crawford is in washington. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah, charlie, gayle. mark sanford is said to appear in court next month to answer a complaint that he trespassed at the home of his ex-wife, jenny, back in february. now, that court date is may 9th. that is just two days after a
special election for a vacant congressional seat between sanford and his democratic rival, elizabeth cullbush, being the sister of stephen colbert. the complaint according to documents obtained last night by the associated press says sanford violated the terms of his divorce settlement. it says neither he nor his ex-wife can enter the other's homes without permission. and it says jenny sanford caught him leaving her house through a back door using his cell phone for a flashlight. now, she's denying that she leaked these documents. she says the timing of the court date is purely a coincidence. but if sanford here is trying to make this political comeback i think we can all agree this is not the kind of attention he needs, and it's just three weeks before election day. norah? charlie? gayle? >> what is sanford's explanation for doing that? >> why was he there? >> we have no comment from anyone in the sanford camp. that's the question of course everyone is asking back in february. you know it's late at night or
it's at night, he's leaving his house using his cell phone. not the kind of image you want in your candidate. >> at a place that he may know that he's not welcome. >> that's right. >> it's the words "run-in" and "exes" never go well today. american airlines promised today will be a near normal day in travel. that's not what happened yesterday. a computer glitch grounded american's planes for several hours. tens of thousands were passengers were grounded. the airline's ceo has apologized. >> this morning we experienced a systemwide network outage causing flight disruptions and inconveniencing many of you. and for that, we are very sorry. as you'd imagine, we do have redundancies in our systems, but unfortunately in this case we had a software issue that impacted both our primary and backup systems. >> american can selled nearly 1,000 flights before the problem was fixed. more cancellations are expected
today. some passengers are getting refunds if they cannot be rescheduled. well, the mayor of toronto also ran into trouble on the ground. rob ford was leaving a city hall meeting on monday. suddenly he bumped into a video camera face first. wow! ford cursed as he staggered, then he said "guys, have some respect. the mayor said later, he was okay. the tv channel said the photographer was pinned against the wall and could not get out of the way. that's just embarrassing on many levels for both parties involved. and he was not hurt. he was not hurt. never a picture you want to be seeing. the camera's kind of big. >> yeah. look up. look up. >> look up.
